Golf Digest recently recognized Grandfather Golf and Country Club on its list of America’s 100 Greatest Courses for 2013/2014. The Club’s inclusion in the publication’s “Best In State” ranking for 2013/2014 was also announced. And, in 2012, the Championship Course was recognized as the top golf course in North Carolina’s mountains and second in the state by Business North Carolina. While championship tees feature 7,010 yards for a par of 72, the picturesque Championship Golf Course includes subtle breaks and allows players of all handicaps to select a challenging round at any of Grandfather’s four tee positions, including one at 4,800 yards. As planned, each unique hole is its own signature, surrounded by native streams and other natural wonders. Each hole is designed to flow seamlessly while concealing each hole from the next with a screen of lush rhododendron and towering hemlocks. Governed by USGA rules, Grandfather’s golf events are carefully scheduled to maximize enjoyment and access by members and their guests.
